A federal judge sentenced Kifano “Shotti” Jordan to 15 years in prison in connection to federal racketeering investigation.Jordan, along with managing the career of rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, was the alleged leader of the New York street gang Nine Trey Bloods. He plead guilty in March to two federal weapons counts stemming from separate incidents in 2018: an armed robbery at G-Unit offices and the discharging of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence in Brooklyn.
Jordan, Tekashi — real name Daniel Hernandez, and other members of the Nine Trey Bloods were swept up by the feds last November. The indictment claimed the group allegedly used drugs, murder, and robbery to gain power. In January Hernandez pleaded guilty to nine federal counts and agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors in hope for a reduced sentence.
Jordan was originally hit with six counts, including racketeering conspiracy, violent crimes in aid of racketeering. Several charges were dropped following his plea agreement in March.
Hernandez is still awaiting sentencing.
